nice to see some older steel in here. i have a 53 chevy 2 door, and joebomber52 has a 52. have you thought about using a after market front end?
they sell the harnesses for itOriginally posted by yodawagon@Sep 12 2005, 03:43 PM~3800160
ill be scraping the whole shot. cross member, suspension, steering, all of it.
i always seem to bite off a little more then i should. a 350 small block is pretty straight forward, why not do a ls1? im not use to all the electronics. theres like 500 wires on that thing.guess its time to get out the wiring diagrams.
yeah dude shipping would be heaftyOriginally posted by yodawagon@Sep 12 2005, 04:06 PM~3800333
ill definately contact you first before scrapping it. ive found the harnesses, and im sure it will get done, im just use to like 6-8 wires and a fuel line to the carb.
think it will all fit on a pallet?
i live in minnesota so shipping might be high. i know its between 300-400 to ship a pallet to cali from here.
the cups for the front will be 4-4.5 inches in diameter i beleiveOriginally posted by Vinnie@Sep 12 2005, 05:50 AM~3797019
This is my first post. My name is Vinnie and I live in London, UK. I have a 54 chevy and I'm trying to install bags on the stock front end. I removed the cross member last week and I apreciate any tips/picture on where to cut/modify to fit a set of contitech 2500.
i have a customer with a 35 master looking for a 235 but hell the price for it to get here would be huge unless it was free lolOriginally posted by yodawagon@Sep 12 2005, 04:08 PM~3800353
know anyone that wants a 235? i think. with a 3 speed? runs pretty well. only like 83k on it. also have a rear end and drive shaft. all 53 stock. if you need anything else just ask, ill be taking alot off of this car.
wellOriginally posted by Vinnie@Sep 13 2005, 12:54 AM~3803393
Thanks for the answers.
I was thinking about a MII but over here it will cost me twice of the price in $. It's why I give up and started working on the stock front end.
The engine, gearbox and rear axle came all from a 70 camaro (350/350/10bolts). For the rear I'm thinking to use a 4 link set, so the car will sit real low.
thanks joe for the offer of making the brackets, but I already have a 4 1/2 inch tube and a plate.
Plating the lower arm, trimming the top hat and installing dropped uprights, I should be around 3-4 inches from the ground. Any other way to go further down...I was considering sinking the bottom of the lower arm (1-2 inches) for more clearance...do you think it will be a good idea?
